Bears are comming!

Well I started 3 baits the 1st week of July. One is being hit regularlly, the other 2 are pretty slow. Started 2 more this week.

This is my first ever attempt at baiting in bears. I'm using corn, grease, splenda, and chocolate covered cherries. Seems they have a sweet tooth, because they aren't into the corn. I also have alot of young pumpkins in the garden and have put out a few that they ate.

Anyway, the season in Wisconsins zone C opens Sept. 7.
I need to keep them interested, The area I hunt has other hunters baiting. Talked to one last week, he's being hit as well.

Any veterain bear hunters have any tips?

Ive never been fortunate enough to hunt them but have always heard that old doughnuts from a bakery (cheap factor) covered with molasses is a favorite.

Just cheap dog food covered in honey always works for me.

I like popcorn when I'm hunting the site. They love it and they have to stick around to eat it. I also use chicken and chicken livers.

Re: Bears are comming!

Thanks for the suggestions guys, right now I'm in the process of finding pasteries. Tough to come by because of all the other bear hunters getting them.

The dog food and chicken are out WDNR does not allow any animals parts or byproduct of animals. Don't know if a honey bee falls under their definition of an animal thou?

checked my bait this AM and it was hit again [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
